Southwold bowed out of the Suffolk Cup after a tight game at Woodbridge that was decided in extra-time.

The home side’s forwards dominated in the Southwold half for the majority of the opening stage of the match.

As a result the visitors gave away a penalty. Minutes later Southwold broke out of their half and were awarded a penalty of their own to level the scores.

Woodbridge came back from the restart and capitalised on Southwold’s mistakes before the visitors scored a try through Tim O’Connell which was converted.

The visitors’ defence sharpened up but Woodbridge took the score to 20-8 at half-time.

Southwold’s defence moved up a gear in the second half and having gained more possession, tries by Barton and Block followed.

Both were converted by Middleditch, who also slotted a penalty, leaving the score at 25-25 on 80 minutes.

As this was a cup game extra-time followed.

Southwold raised their game and were awarded a penalty try. But Woodbridge also scored a couple of tries and added to their tally with a penalty to win the day 42-32.

Southwold return to Woodbridge for a league match tomorrow as their London Three Eastern Counties campaign resumes.

Following an excellent 45-19 win over Holt last time out they lead the way by a single point from Stowmarket, the only side to have beaten them so far,

It has been a very different story so far for neighbours Lowestoft & Yarmouth who have lost all 10 of the fixtures, including one concession. They welcome seventh placed Wymondham to Gunton Park tomorrow and will be looking for a boost ahead of a tough local derby at Southwold on Saturday, December 16.

Bowls: It was the battle of the ladies at Browston Hall as the A team took on the B. The As won 54-47 but didn’t have it all their own way.

Dahlia MacDonald’s team of Barbara Stanton and Gill Bird came out top for the As with a 16-10 resul. Sally Webb and her block of Paula Cleeter and Pam Spooner followed with a 16-10 win. Finally Sally Moon together with Julie Hodds and Audrey Cooke completed matters for the As with a tight 12-10 finish. For the B team Sue Moretta’s team of Lilly Warman and Tracey Hargreaves picked up a fine 13-7 win.
